    London count is ticking along and right now the figures look like this:

    First round%

    Lab Sadiq Khan 44.0%
    Con Zac Goldsmith 35.0%
    Green Sian Berry 6.0%
    Lib Dem Caroline Pidgeon 4.0%
    UKIP Peter Whittle 4.0%
    Women Sophie Walker 2.0%
    Respect George Galloway 1.0%
    http://www.theguardian.com/politics/...s-tracker-2016

    It looks like London has decisively rejected the dog whistle appeals to racism and strife generated by corrupt Tory adviser-in-chief, Lynton Crosby, who has controlled the party's message in recent elections and focuses on smears and character attacks just before election day.

    It's also great to see Galloway getting a kicking and the Greens likely coming third! :clap2:


    Sometimes I am so glad to live in one of the greatest cities in the world and tonight will be cause for considerable celebration. :woohoo:

    EDIT: Now looks a dead cert that Khan is the new Mayor of London. Very happy to see the back of Boris, who has been a dreadful Mayor and a big thumbs down to the useless Zac Goldsmith and his race hate campaign.

    by the way
    3:00 and 8:35
    and 1:52
    "ohh, look at the lightsabers" he says
    what about the ****ing terrorist flags
    Labour turned into a openly islamists party. Yawn

    Seeing that London is not majority Britishh no wonder Sadiq won there. In future britain would need to abandom a city in favour of ISIS and move the capital somewhere else.

    People who think that Khan will introduce Shariah Law to London don't understand the powers of the Mayor of London.

    Well sadiq khan is a muslim.
    What does islam have? Sharia law. So it is possibly subconciously affecting his decisions. Its reading between the lined a lot though haha.
    I will inhibit my personal feelings of islamophobia as much as possible when considering sadiq as mayor. Congrats to him and i really hope he can fulfill the promises he made!

    Just because someone is Muslim, doesn't mean they support Shariah Law. This has been mentioned a million times already but Sadiq voted for gay marriage. This resulted in an iman issuing a fatwa against him as well as death threats from hardline Muslims.

    Hell, I have friends who are Muslim and eat pork because they don't give a damn about their religion anymore.

    IDK exactly, but if he calls himself a muslim. Then he kinda is one? Unless the imam's or religious leaders say he's not, well then he is. Practicing muslim, well idk. You probably do end up practicing a bit of what you learn, so I guess the same applies to him; decisions are made based on past experiences and intuition.

    What's so confusing? At least be specific with your pickiness.

    Okay fair enough- then the question is he a Muslim? I mean if he has his own imams telling him he's not then he kinda isn't. It's like being a Christian and having the Pope remove you from the church, yet still calling yourself a Christian.
    TBH he'd probably get less hate then if he just said he has no religion, but he does believe in a greater being/presence.
    Eating pork and being muslim is so contradictory... like a hindu eating beef. They need to check their beliefs out, switch religions or have no religion ya know.

    Khan was an excellent candidate and showed what labour needs to do to win elections, run an inclusive campaign based on hope, not the divisive 'us against them campaign' which the central leadership seems to favour.


    Excellent to see Londoners tell Zac goldsmith where to stick his prejudicial, divisive and fearmongering campaign.

    Probably would have worked anywhere else but London is one of the most cohesive, multicultural cities anywhere.

    Your daft comments about sharia law affecting Sadiq Khan's thought process, as BasicMistake said, even though he is a muslim it doesn't mean he gives a toss about sharia law.
